Forums - Sony Discussion - Linus - I’ve Disappointed and Embarrassed Myself (re: PS5 SSD)

"Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney recently stated that the upcoming Playstation 5 would feature a storage architecture "far ahead of anything you can buy on anything on PC for any amount of money right now". Linus initially attacked Sweeney's statement, citing existing SSDs with faster read/write speeds. In this video, Linus explains how he misunderstood Sweeney's statement, apologizes for spreading misinformation, and discusses some of the cool tech that makes the PS5 truly exciting for gamers of all stripes."

Gotta Admit I didnt see this coming.
Linus admitting to haveing a PC master race faults, without fact checking his claims.
Attacking Tim Sweeney for shilling for Sony.

Still finding your wrong about something, and apologizing for spreading misinformation takes alot.
Kudos Linus.

I'm going to just copy and paste what I said in another thread.

"I just watched it. That was amazing. It REALLY takes it on the chin at the beginning.

He didn't cry. He didn't monetize. He apologized. He asked other people that used his thoughts/words/video to apologize. He went on to talk about the SSD and tried to explain it in a different way to "get through" to the people that didn't get Cerny video. Then he called out the people who think that Sweeny was some how paid off by Sony.

He nailed it 100%."

edit: changed Cerny to Sweeny. Thanks for that catch.

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

Damn this going to be good

Also i am going to include another developer

“The PlayStation 5 provides a huge leap in both computing and graphics performance, but its storage architecture is also truly special,” Penwarden says. “The ability to stream in content at extreme speeds enables developers to create denser and more detailed environments, changing how we think about streaming content. It’s so impactful that we’ve rewritten our core I/O subsystems for Unreal Engine with the PlayStation 5 in mind.”

This isn't the first time we heard something like this from a colleague in the press. Jason Schreier, previously of Kotaku fame and now at Bloomberg, pointed out the very same thing shortly after the next-gen system spec reveals.

Sony has dropped the ball and there's going to be like weeks and weeks, if not months and months, especially with Corona disrupting everything, of people just talking about how the Xbox Series X is the most powerful console and it's beating the PS5 in every single way. Meanwhile, I'm getting texts and DMs, even today as this was going on, from developers being like 'This is such a shame, the PS5 is so superior in all these other ways that they're not actually able to message right now or can't talk about right now'. I heard from at least three different people in the past couple of hours since the Cerny talk being like 'The PS5 is actually like the more superior piece of hardware in a lot of different ways despite what you're seeing in these paper spec sheets'.

We should soon get a taste of what the PlayStation 5 can really do, given that the showcase event has been confirmed for Thursday, June 4th at 1 PM Pacific Time.

OP you can use my comment as another source 



While I don't watch his videos anymore and haven't been since forever, mad respect for going back and admitting he was wrong, apologizing and educating people as well.

It's a whatever apology.

But I know next to nothing about this guy to actually care either.

PS5 event will just gain more traction so there's that.



Linus was bought by sony. It's the only explanation.



It takes genuine talent to see greatness in yourself despite your absence of genuine talent.

Good on him. Those in the know.......... know.

Isnt linus the biggest techtuber? Hopefully this will have a trickle down affect and we can end this ssd war once and for all.
